I tend to try and help bloggers in trouble. When I first read about Acidman's tax problems, I was tempted to run a piece suggesting that people donate to help him out, and then the above piece reminded me of what a hateful racist he is and I decided what the hell do I care. It's no wonder even conservatives de-linked him, and that his traffic is in the shitter after being one of the top conservative blogs. Some conservative friends of mine excuse Rob as just a hopeless old codger, but he isn't. Rob is the worst kind of racist. The kind who is actually defiant about his racism.
Let's just say I wont cry if the man ends up in a homeless shelter, sandwitched in between a black man and a latino in the soup line...
Good grief! I've done it again. I'm not going to link to the guy's site, but I'll mention that he has ME pegged perfectly, just as Oliver Willis does. I am, indeed, a virulent racist.
I mentioned in a recent post about great brain-farts of the past that school busing and mandatory integration resulted in the dumbing-down of public schools because "blacks couldn't compete." HOW DARE ME suggest such a thing!!!
I would offer public schools today as proof of what happened, but nobody is supposed to notice test scores, or wingnuts suggesting that "Ebonics" be taught as a second language, or that black parents, especially a mama AND a daddy together, are suspiciously absent from PTA meetings. Only "racists" notice stuff like that.
It's also "racist" to mention that 12% of our population makes up over 50% of our prison inmates, or that a certain minority group in this country sports a 70% illegitimate birth-rate. We simply DO NOT SPEAK of such things. It is RACIST to do so.
I have a couple of questions, however: Did the policies government followed over the past 40 years have anything to do with creating and maintaining a permanent underclass in this country? Are low expectations any less racist than using the forbidden N-word? If racism is why American blacks lag behind everybody else in test scores, income and employment in this country, then why do blacks from actual AFRICAN nations come here and prosper?
I wuz just wonderin.'
Three things will REALLY get you in deep shit today. The first is getting crossways with the IRS. That's like having the Gestapo after you. The second is daring to criticize political correctness. That's like refusing to take your Soma in our Brave New World.
The third is having the unmitigated gall to suggest that the very policies that government and "compassionate" people have foisted upon American blacks over the past 40 years have been the same as giving them an incurable dose of a fatal disease. I look at the ghettos, the gang-bangers and the Savannah Crimewatch numbers and I am sickened by them--- NOT because I am racist, but because I believe that the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and the TRUE racists of today are the assholes who claim to be advocates for "Black People."
Look at what their "help" has done so far. Herd people into public housing like animals in a zoo. Teach them that they "deserve" something for nothing. NEVER expect any individual accountability and cry "RACISM!!!" whenever the group doesn't automatically rise to the top. Change the rules to favor a certain segment of the population, and when that doesn't work to put them on top of the world, change the rules AGAIN.
Treat THEM differently than the way you treat everyone else, then call it a "hate crime" if anyone dares to notice. Make that crap THE LAW!!!
Now... tell me how racist I am again???
Hey, I get to do the first comment. Is that cool, or what? Do I get a prize for this?
Life is a lot better if one simply avoids liberals and their agendas (agendae?). As for me, I'm as diverse as I'll ever be.
You do get to the root of the issue. It's like a sweet, slow-acting poison. It lulls into dreamland, then strangles in sleep. As one famous commentator puts it, this poison is "the soft bigotry of low expectations".
It's not race, it's culture. Africans haven't had it drilled into them from birth that success equates to being an "Oreo". They come here and find that the field is open and they excel.
Oh, but how **hateful** it is to point out that the liberal solution for the "race problem" is itself tremendously racist and harmful.
Just telling the truth will get your ass in hot water these days, fuckem, I am a racist and proud of it.
If you are a racist I am condemned to an eternal hell, which I don't believe in.
USA: Black = Better policies = Wrong.
So is aid, without strings, to Africa.
I don't want to get into a pissing contest over whether you're really a racist A-man but the reason "12% of our population makes up over 50% of our prison inmates" has everything to do with the racist policies of the war on some drugs and almost nothing to do with the amount of the crimes they commit. The do not commit 50% of the crimes. There's a lot statistical evidence to back that up.
Racism is not a myth. It does exist and the war on some drugs was built on it, from reefer madness to mandatory minimums.
There's more of them in jail because they're convicted more often, and often for lesser crimes than white people with money are and a whole lot, if not the vast majority, are in on small time offenses that were enhanced by school zone violations and other mandatory minimum sentencing schemes.
And before people jump on me about dealing drugs in school zones, in the inner cities it's almost impossible NOT to live in a school zone. Hell in the country it's hard to live in one. Technically I do and I'm miles from a real school but there's two day care centers within walking distance. They count daycare centers as schools and nobody is dealing to three year olds.
The law was designed to prevent people from dealing drugs to kids, fine, but it's being used to simply enhance sentences and not just for black and brown people. For instance there was a recent case in the Berkshires where a 17 year old white kid got two years in jail for selling the equivalent of one skinny joint of marijuana to an undercover guy who not only hounded him into selling the weed but insisted they walk to a certain part of a parking lot that would put the kid into the zone of a daycare center that wasn't even marked with a sign or open at the time.
Well, at the risk of seeming to be insensitive to the 17 year-old pothead doofuses of the world, part of the answer might be to (1) don't do drugs, (2) don't deal drugs and then (3) don't go to jail for doing or dealing drugs. I know this is pretty radical thinking. It's just a thought.
Fucking right Acidman. all of it.
Hopefully we'll all live long enough to see race baiters, liberals and PC idjits hung en-masse from utility poles....
Yeah, Rob, I guess I'm racist, too. I remember when schools in Jawja were integrated, I was in the third grade when the busses started rolling, and the only people who cared were the kids having to get up early to ride the bus. I thought it was cool having black kids in school, cause our friends across the street (including our babysitter) could now go to the same school as us. But all of us, black, white, yellow, whatever, thought it was stupid to bus kids across town when we had plenty of every color right there in our neighborhood.
My stepdaughter has four black kids with three different daddies in NW Jawja, three of which I've taken into my home and raised at times. But because I criticized her way of life (She's now out of the ghetto and working for a living, by the way, and even quit speaking Ebonics, along with her new, still black husband) I am a racist in liberal's minds. Oh well.
OK, Libby, LETS look at the statistics, according to the FBI National Uniform Crime Statistics/2005
Data based on a total of 22,434 (solved) murder offenders showed that 91 percent of the assailants were males, and 85 percent were 18 years of age or older. Fifty-three percent of the offenders were black and 45 percent were white.....
So 6%% of the population commited 53% of all murders...(number of black males in the general population)
Data based on a total 224,125 (solved) forcible rape offenders showed that 99.8% were males, and 90% of the offenders were 18 years old or older, 57% of the offenders were black, and 43% of the offenders were white. (I still kind of wonder about that .02% figure of women forcible rapists...)
So 6% of the population committed all forcible rapes
go down the line in all the catagories and the story is the same. a tiny percentage of the population is committing the majority of violent crimes,three guesses on what that % consists of and it might be noted also that the stats are misleading for the white population, as Latinos, for the purposes of the study are considered as being white....
So care to tell me again about the "racist" element in incarceration Libby?
When an argument canot be refuted logically or with facts one is called a racist. And when that doesn't seem to faze then one is called a racist mutha fukka. And that is when I tell them that the two dollars I give his momma was a buck 75 too much for a two bit whore.
Sorry I got distracted and didn't expect any response. Delftsman, I have to admit I'm not that informed on overall crime rates but I do know drug war statistics and this much I know for sure. We have approx 2.4 million in jail. Approx half a million are drug defendants and black and brown people comprise a disproportinate amount of those inmates compared to amount of drug offenses they commit. At least half of all drug offenders, I don't remember the exact number and I'm too dizzed out on my new meds to feel like looking it up, but it may be more, are non-violent offenders. That's got to contribute to the overall statistics.
My point, such as it is, is that reefer madness started in large part as a way to suppress a minority community of color. The enhanced penalties for crack is another example. It's the same drug as cocaine but crack was used more in the ghettos because it's cheap and coke is used by pinstripe suited businessmen who happen to be mostly white. They enhanced the penalties for crack way over the same offenses for coke.
There's other examples but like I said my brain is clearly a little fuzzy today or I never would have commented at all. I guess what I'm trying to say is I believe drug policy for the last six decades has been rooted in racism and those same policies that seemed so acceptable when they only targeted black people are now being turned against all of us. The 17 year old white kid in the Berkshires being one example.
And Liam, it's easy to say the kid shouldn't have done it but it's not realistic. Were you so perfect when you were a teenager that you never made any mistakes in judgement? Sorry but I think it's a little harsh to lock up a teenager for two years and saddle him with a lifelong criminal record for a thimble full of dried plant. In saner times, the kid would be sent home with his parents for a whipping and given some hundred hours of community service. Personally I think that would serve him and us as a civil society better.
Acidman, don't hold back just cause you like me. You want to fisk me go ahead, I can take it and I'm an easy target today.
Jeez, I am longwinded today. Sorry I used up so much bandwidth A-man.
Yes, Libby, I did make mistakes. Lots of 'em. And, although I grew up in a dirt-poor family in Louisiana, I never did drugs, used drugs, shot someone, raped anybody or robbed any banks. My momma and daddy (both of whom I knew) taught me better than that. Perfect? No. I just did my best to avoid doing really stupid antisocial crap that would have gotten me some prison time. Guess I'm just "lucky" that way.
This guy wrote the book on MMS! He is dead set against it! He will also give you some excellent reaing on the subject as well.
Today he is fighting to get it killed. Which it should be.
Now such has nothing to do with racisim! NOTHING!
Al and Uncle Jesse are probably two of the biggest racisists on the planet!
Rob your words are spot on. What is sad is that we as a country can't seem to even be able to discuss the subject without moving the poles of the earth toward one another.
I'm not trying to be snippy Liam and your point is well taken but I don't think it's fair to equate drug use, especially marijuana, with violent crime. I DID do drugs as a young person but I didn't do any of those violent things either. And I didn't do drugs cause I cause I wasn't raised right by my mom and dad. I did drugs cause I wanted to try them and I kept doing them cause I liked the way they made me feel. I don't think that makes me a bad person who deserved to be in jail then and I don't think anybody should be put in jail now for doing the same as I did.
New Orleans, Nagin, a fine example of the black America. Sorry I ain't buying the bullshit anymore, if I am a racist then the black community created me.
quickly want to add that i just watched an interesting history channel program that said almost all drug laws were originally created because congressmen thought blacks that did drugs went out and raped white women.
Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.
The Netherlands and Belgium are more crowded than Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.
Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to "assimilate," i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.
What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?
How long would it take anyone to realize I'm not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?
And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn't object to this?
But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.
